09/03/2021 – Evening shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela finished off his writing and was very pleased with his accomplishment. We then played a round of cards – counting, shuffling and sorting into two decks before putting them away. It was then time for dinner – lamb hotpot. Fela really enjoyed this, not to mention the assembly of delicious desserts afterwards – chocolate and peanut butter cupcake, chocolate gingerbread man and chocolate brownie with meringue topping – all leftovers from the birthday banquet.

We listened to a telephone message from Nanna Hazel then did the board. We rang her back and Fela eavesdropped after saying “hello Nanna”. We ended the chat by singing the ‘I love you song’ to her. She was very pleased because she could hear Fela’s voice distinctly.

Fela then got up to dance probably because it was on the board. we danced for 20 minutes to Michael Bolton, Christopher Cross and Stevie wonder. Fela had his snack which included hot chocolate as requested. whilst eating, he listened to soothing sounds of Billy Ocean, Luther Vandross and the Eagles followed by a bit more Michael Bolton – all part of the playlist. I gave him a quick facial trim before we left Green Pastures. We arrived back at his home around 21:00 and left him in the bath in Claire’s capable hands.

All in all, a pleasant day with no issues.
